A man has been arrested after police say he admitted to multiple robberies in Warren County.

Robert Blevings, 50, was in jail Thursday morning.

Just before 12 p.m. on Tuesday, an armed robbery was reported at Domino's Pizza on North Broadway.

Employees told police the suspect was wearing hospital scrubs and had a weapon. Police said the man got away with cash and fled in a dark colored SUV.

Officers spotted the SUV leaving the area and attempted a traffic stop. Officials said after a short pursuit, Blevings stopped and was taken into custody without incident. 

Police said Blevings matched the suspect description of the person wanted for an armed robbery at the Black Barn Garden Center on July 25 and an attempted armed robbery at LaRosa's on July 30.

Investigators said they recovered a gun, cash and receipts from Domino's Pizza in his car. A search warrant resulted in the recovery of items related the other two incidents. 

Police said Blevings admitted to all three crimes during an interview.

He is currently charged with one count of aggravated robbery. Additional charges are pending.
